I’m sitting here looking out the window wondering what to write and I notice the Japanese lilac are blooming. They are so lovely to look at and the fragrance fills the air when I walk out the kitchen door. I so wish there was some way to capture the moments of blooming in a time capsule and hang on to them for a little longer.
It is so much fun in the spring to start the watching of what is blooming next. On the roadside today I noticed it is the little yellow chamomile flowers that are out. In my garden the roses are beginning to bloom and the day lilies are about to start bursting out.
We found a box full of old seed today and I planted a bunch of them. I have no idea if they will grow but I sprinkled things all over the yard. There are asters, snapdragons, sweet peas, morning glories and some columbine I brought home from Colorado about 10 years ago. I wish I’d found the box a month ago but maybe they will grow.
I love watching the garden. It makes me a little sad that things come and go so quickly.
The garden is like life. It changes daily. Things come and go just like the people in our lives and each bloom adds new colour and fragrance to our lives. When they are gone we can lament their passing or we can bask in the memory of the their beauty.
Have a wonderful weekend.
